The film is a modern-day retelling of the epic Ramayana and it is yet another pan-India film starring Prabhas. Like most of his movies, Adipurush will also be huge on budget and VFX-heavy.

Meanwhile, it has been learned that the cost of making Adipurush is set at Rs 500 crore, making it one of Indian cinema's most expensive films. As per the speculation on Twitter, Adipurush has been made at a whopping budget as mentioned above and Prabhas took home Rs 100 crore as his fees for the movie. Given his stardom and pan-India appeal, such a huge salary isn't unbelievable.
